Quartz worktop repair

I managed to drop a heavy item on the edge of our quartz

worktop and it chipped it :cry: does anyone have a recommendation for someone to repair this?

Not used them but try:https://stonerescue.co.uk/stone-worktop/worktop-chips-cracks-repair/?utm_term=&utm_campaign=Dynamic&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=ppc&hsa_acc=3028072172&hsa_cam=7614384360&hsa_grp=88012949904&hsa_ad=392756560276&hsa_src=g&hsa_tgt=dsa-396790493403&hsa_kw=&hsa_mt=b&hsa_net=adwords&hsa_ver=3&gclid=Cj0KCQiAgomBBhDXARIsAFNyUqPbbYukOGHw4W6rNegTw1Fo3VxGENxpqk7tT3cYcBreWHZF2KpMruMaAglxEALw_wcB

I did a similar fix to a black hearth - came out well… main issue here is going to be matching the colour. If it’s just grey (no tones of other colours) when you could buy a couple of the epoxies and carefully measure and mix them and cure samples of them and attempt to work out what mix would match the quartz… not an easy job though :frowning_face:

Thank you. I will do a bit of research but this is all so helpful.

Thanks Tony. I think this is quite a niche recommendation so may have to just go with google :grimacing:

not a recommendation (I know you asked for a rec so this isn’t exactly what you asked for), but how about this guy:

first review mentions kitchen worktop

In a weird coincidence, we have a similar edge chip, but smaller on our quartz worktop which we obtained from Imperial Marble &Granite in SE6. Apparently they can fix it for £60 which we’re happy to pay given it’s newish.
I will report back once we book them in.

Amazing. I might email them for a quote as that would be MUCH lower than we’ve had quotes for elsewhere. Thank you so much.

How did you do yours out of interest? We have some super heavy glasses and one fell down when I was unloading the dishwasher :grimacing:

It’s a mystery… I suspect the cleaners.
It is located by the microwave so it would make sense that it happened when taking something heavy out of it which banged against the edge.

Nice colour scheme by the way :slight_smile:

Haha I know. Think we’ve gone for very similar.

So annoying it chips isn’t it.

We ended up using Geology in Beckenham. The company mentioned above only repair if worktop is originally purchased from them. Geology were speedy, efficient and did a good job. Their prices were also the most competitive for such a small job.

NB every company we spoke to said from a distance you won’t notice, but up close you would always seem some sort of repair.

That looks fantastic @pea - you must be pleased :+1:

Am I allowed to ask roughly how much it cost? Is it tens, hundreds or closer to tens of hundreds?

Yep really pleased and glad it’s fixed. £140 - chip is probably the size of my small fingernail. :grimacing:

Looks good!

Out of interest, the company who supplied your quartz originally don’t offer the same service?

I’m getting mine fixed on Monday and will report back.

Weirdly they are based up North so too far for a small repair. Hope yours goes well.
